Meet the Owners: Anna Southall-Millward & Colin Longworth
Anna is a passionate educator with a diverse experiential background. She holds a Bachelor of Arts in English and Psychology from Wilfrid Laurier University and a Bachelor of Education from OISE at the University of Toronto. Her keen interest in travel and education led her to Beijing, China, where she taught at an international school for two years.
Anna’s commitment to individualized instruction and creative learning inspired her additional coursework in guidance and counselling. This area is one that she continues to invest in through volunteer and community work.
As a native of Hamilton, ON, Anna is now back in her hometown where she worked in international teacher and student recruitment for the last four years.
Having served as a tutor both locally and abroad, she strongly believes in the transformative power of supplemental one-on-one instruction. In her spare time, Anna can be found on the basketball court, out in nature, or curled up with a good book.
Colin is a professional engineer originally from Dublin, Ireland. He holds a master’s in engineering and a master’s in management from University College Dublin.
He has enjoyed coding and developing from a young age, which led him to join a large tech multinational after graduation. This work took him around the world to China, Mexico, the United States and more.
Since 2017, Colin has resided in Hamilton, ON, where he co-founded two start-ups in the tech eco-space. He believes in growing businesses at a grassroots and community level and contributes to the locality’s vibrant entrepreneurial scene. A firm believer in access to education for all, Colin is an accomplished online trainer with over 25,000 students joining him to learn virtually every year.
When not coding, Colin can be found on a run, exploring Hamilton’s trails or spinning a DJ mix.

What We’re Doing: The Government’s new approach to education and student interaction is cautious, but it is also essential to be mindful of how these changes impact students’ mental health.
